We moved to HVRSD in 2016 and have been nothing but impressed. The teachers, staff and administrators are always looking to help the individual students’ needs. Excellent communication with parents. Excellent preparation for college. We absolutely love it!

Hvchs was overall a good school. Most of the teachers really care about your success. My only issues were that 1) there is little to no diversity 2) it is assumed you will go to college and they don’t really introduce you to any other options if you decide that’s not your plan (I don’t even know how one got into a votech program) And 3) the kids can be pretty mean. Especially the rich white kids with their parents money. Some kids can be really brutal. To the point where I would suggest enrolling your kid in a private therapy Right off the bat to deal with the transition if your kid will be a new student or if you even suspect there is something off about your child’s mood. Rumors fly at this school and once you find yourself an outcast it’s very hard to fit back in. I was part of the sports teams all 4 years and I was white so I didn’t really have to worry about that but there were some students who I don’t know how they made it through high school.
During my time so far at Hopewell, I’ve had excellent experiences with my teachers and fellow students, and making friends and doing well in classes is easy with universal support from those around you. Diversity is critically low at Hopewell, though the administration makes an effort to represent minorities in school culture and celebrations. Though I won’t miss “Worst Joke Wednesdays” (sadly, it is exactly what it sounds like) after graduation, I will miss the schools work hard, play hard atmosphere.
